Digital jobs have the potential to create significant employment opportunities in East Africa. As the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” progresses, it will create profound changes in the employment landscape around the world.
However, the extent and timing of these changes will be influenced by the particularities of individual nations. Moringa School and Mercy Corps commissioned a report which interrogates these issues and aims to shed light on how Kenya and Uganda can prepare for their own respective digital futures in light of both their unique national contexts and larger global trends.

We tested a licensing model to MEST in Ghana and to Outbox in Uganda to increase accessibility of our courses and learning model to new markets. This was the year that we also professionalized our management team to help us scale into the future!
Nairobi Tech Week (NTW) is Sub-Saharan Africa’s largest annual tech event for product makers, bringing various actors and influencers within the tech ecosystem into one space to exhibit the forefront of innovation and technology. Nairobi Tech Week primarily focuses on tech makers such as entrepreneurs, designers, developers, data scientists, students, engineering managers and more.
As the student numbers were growing, we moved from Nairobi Garage to a short stint elsewhere, and then finally to our current home at Ngong Lane Plaza. This is also the year we launched Moringa 2.0 and had our first alumni night.
One of our students(name withheld) dropped out in the first week of learning. We then grew slowly to a class of 11 and Audrey (Co-Founder, CEO) had to spend a lot of time in the classroom to ensure that the students had what they need and the learning was going smoothly.
